I got a similar email as well. Renewal rate of $325 and 5k PQM.
Looks like a good deal, no?

Same for me as a CP - $325 new + 5K PQMs.

Also, what is happening at DCA? Is US taking over another club or opening a new space?

New club in the middle pier. Not sure where exactly in there.

When using the card to access a United/Co club, are spouses and children traveling with you allowed access? How about *A lounges?

I'm thinking hard about not renewing my Amex Plat -- getting 5k PQM and access to United lounges too for a year would be a nice incentive.

My Club membership expires April (bought last year during the $259 promo). I called, the lady said I could renew now for $325 + 5k PQMs ... I said OK, ... tap, tap, tap ...and the 5k miles are instantly in my DM account and marked as Preferred too

Thank you, US Airways!

Just got off the phone with the Club folks. The old 90 day rule is still in effect - can't renew before you are 90 days or fewer from your expiration date. Drat.

I recall the offer last fall was 3,500 PQMs, so this is a better deal. Of course, these PQMs will count toward 2012 (rather than 2011) preferred qualification.

Are the deals different (cost) for CP/PP/GP/SP?

As Gold, the offer that I received today was $375 with 5K PQM's, to renew.
Looks like CP is $325 with 5K PQM's.

Good deal either way, when you take into consideration the 5K PQM's I probably would have renewed (same cost) without them, anyway. Who doesn't love free PQM's????

Since AMEX doesn't work at the UA clubs, I dropped that last year. I use UA clubs almost as much as US. With the 5K PQM's - this is (IMHO) a much better value.

You get spouse/children at all the UA/CO clubs, in addition, of course, to the US clubs. Not sure about *A lounges.. I don't think you even get entry, unless you are *G and traveling international.

You get access to Star Alliance business lounges with a paid membership, and you get one guest. *G isn't required.

You may get into a better lounge with *G vs. a paid membership, however. You don't get access to contract lounges, such as in PRG as that's a contract lounge.

I got the offer for $375 +5k as a silver too. I already have a RCC/UC membership from a UA credit card, so this deal doesn't make much sense for me.

Yeah I think my promo for $375 is bcuz I'm only a silver. For anyone that is on the fence about a club membership the waiving of the $50 initiation fee and 5,000 pqm's should be enough to tip the scale.

Paid lounge members can access any *A business lounge as long as you have a *A flight from that airport. You're allowed one guest. Contract lounges are excluded.

Edit: whoops, already answered. I need to type faster.

Good to know about the *A lounges...

Just renewed my April 5 expiration via phone. Spent more time on hold, than it took to renew once I was connected - very cool.

As stated above, the 5K PQM's were in my account before I hung up the phone

BTW... The agent told me that only CP's get $325... all the rest are $375.

Ugh, renewed effective 1/1/12 for a whopping 500 EQMs and I've flown once since then.
